    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay and tons of on and offsite benefits. Trying to attract a younger crowd of engineers. Hire lots of engineering interns every summer. Nice location, usually either Hillsboro or Chandler.

    Cons

    They are always trying to reduce headcount, making the remaining employees extremely overworked. Extremely difficult to get anything done due to the many levels of bureaucracy. Stressful work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Gain a better relationship with outside contractors and trade companies. Try to make the office environment more fun for employees. Work within the company to try to gain a better reputation for corporate services construction.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    good for college grads to get started and gain experience. less pressure than other companies in the industry. some sites are better than others. find out the good sites and managers early or you will be stuck in hell. change group as soon as possible if team is not as expected.

    Cons

    high bureaucracy level, forced bell curves at raises that are super low, over the years the company is taking benefits away to produce high earnings. Bad management most of them are highly technical with no leadership skills at all and poor decisions. Those who rose to top in the pentium era do not want to adjust to fast paced mobile industry just sit their time out. so new employees suffer.

    Advice to Management

    spend time and money on manager training.
